Anyone still using Motorola E815 AFTER Progman 25 Update?

Will the Motorola E815 still pair/work after the Progman 25 update?
Please say yes.
Thanks
Mike

So, for the sake of future inquirers, I guess I'll reply to my own query.
The Motorola E815 will pair with Progman 25, but the "sticky" instructions at the top of this forum are now obsolete. I will say that the pairing procedure is tricky, non-intuitive, and frustrating, but it is still loosely based on the sticky instructions. While it would seem logical that I simply post the procedure here, I can't. Why? Because after about 10 minutes of messing with it, and about 2 minutes away from finally giving up, my flying fingers happened upon the correct sequence that finally allowed me to enter the passcode into both the iDrive and the phone. For the life of me, I can't duplicate here the sequence, and will not try to retrace my steps for fear of losing the pairing. Oh, and the phonebook transfers too. In any case, the good news is that those who use the E815 will not have to replace their phone after a progman update to version 25.

Had the update this week.

My E815 works perfectly. Never had to re-pair it at all. Entire phonebook is also there.

You are very fortunate. I think I sinned during my pairing experience (a lot . . . in thought, deed and, especially, profanity) and was literally two minutes from giving up and buying a new BMW "Bluetooth approved' phone.
In any case, looks like we're both good to go.

I have a March 07 production car. No problems syncing Motorola E815. Takes about 3 seconds.

Only issue I have is that I see 3 names for everyone LOL (home, work, other cel).
